Herbal Medicine


Phytotherapy is the study of medicinal plants.
Recent research has led to new understanding of the importance of herbal medicine.

Phytotherapist (from the Greek Phyto, meaning “plant”) is the name given to those who have university training in medicinal plants and use them therapeutically.

Julia has a degree in Phytotherapy (Herbal medicine), the highest professional qualification in the field, and applies scientific research to the practice of herbal medicine.

Grow Your Own Health

The project involved handing out a ‘welcome’ packet of seeds to people as an invitation to grow something new this Spring. The aim was to encourage people to make a connection between their own individual wellbeing and nurture, and environmental health, and nature.
